One Foggy Morn

Uploaded: October 20, 2007


F4.5, 1/500, 150mm, ISO 250, taken in Dec of last year. Applied Orton and several Virtual Photographer filters (fall color, ambience, romance) and then used PhotoArt Master Classic for the painted effect.
I saw so many birds on this winter outing, although I couldn't get close enough to many of them. I have wanted to do something with this image ever since I took it, but it just took awhile to figure out what. :)
